  • AMF C-90's

    Just picked up 12 used C-90's for a new install. Look like pretty decent machines but... out of the 48 c-track covers, 45 are bad!! All 45 have melted, like they have been in some extreme heat. Everything else looks fine... Just about choked when I called for a price to replace c-tracks... $150 per? Even Brunswick ain't that bad.

        We just recover ours. Quality #12-4350 last a long time. For $123.55 you get a kit of 3 covers @ 40” each. If just the bottom wears out you can repair up to 6 rails by just cutting out the bottom portion.

        Now…the problems recovering your own, is stripping the old material off and drilling and countersinking (for the spacers) on the new ones, is very labor intensive.

        It would sure be nice if someone were to have predrilled holes for new covers….Are you listening Ed Fox?.....cha ching!!!!

          Picked up 24 lane package that came from "Bel Aire Lanes" in Farmington, MI. Bought them through United Bowling (don't even get me started). They apparently sat through the summer in a storage trailer. Can't believe that it got hot enough inside to melt the tracks.

            Too bad folks don't know what the heat will do to hte urethane 'c' tracks.
            I've put in lots of them, many came over on a boat. IMHO, if they've been in a container of any sorts for more than a week, the AMF wheels and c-track need replaced.
            The wheels are funny to watch. They run for a while, then a chunk of it will just fall off! You feel it, and it is so soft and flexible, It'll make you're spouse frown.
